Sedivet 10mg/ml Solution for Injection for Horses
Sedivet 10mg/ml Solution 20ml is an injectable tranquilizer that is used to investigate and manipulate difficult horses or minor surgical procedures. When used with a synthetic opioid such as butorphanol, deep sedation/analgesia may be provided. After intravenous administration, initial sedation occurs within 1-2 minutes, maximum sedation occurs after 5-10 minutes. It can also be used as a pre-treatment before general anesthesia. Horse meat and offal: 6 days. When used in combination with other products, consult the product literature of those products and apply whichever is the longer. However, if any of these products are contraindicated for human consumption, then treated animals must not be slaughtered for human consumption. Not authorized for use in lactating animals producing milk for human consumption.
Sedivet 10mg/ml Solution 20ml injection is used as a sedative and analgesic to facilitate handling or during clinical trials, clinical procedures and minor surgical procedures in adult horses. A sedation injection of 1.0% is also indicated as an anesthetic prior to the induction of general anesthesia in adult horses. A single IV injection at 100 µg / kg (1.0 ml / 100 kg body weight) was found to be effective in the pre-anesthesia dose confirmation study. Anesthesia must be induced after reaching maximum sedation. Administration of α2 agonists results in narcotic effects; therefore, anesthesia doses should be reduced to avoid an overdose.
Sedivet 10mg/ml Solution 20ml may be used as a premedication agent with ketamine or thiopentone for short duration anesthesia, or used with ketamine or thiopentone prior to halothane inhalation or ‘topping up’ with ketamine or thiopentone for prolonged procedures. Mild to moderate sedation occurs within 2-4 minutes. After induction, lateral lying occurs within 4 minutes, followed by complete anesthesia within 6-16 minutes. During recovery from anesthesia, sternal lying occurs within 12-83 minutes, followed by standing for 17-84 minutes. Recovery time is mainly determined by the selection of induction anesthesia and/or duration of anesthesia.
